By-Trustee Area Elections
The Sunnyvale School District completed the process to transition from at-large to by-trustee area elections in 2022.
Switching to trustee areas involved dividing the district into five trustee areas of roughly equal population size, based on the most recent Census data. Each trustee is assigned one seat on the Board. Voters within each trustee area will vote only for candidates for the seat on the Board assigned to their trustee area. This system is intended to provide more direct representation and make it easier and less expensive for people who live in each trustee area to run for a seat on the Board of Trustees.
Trustee areas are not connected to attendance areas. Although a trustee is elected within their trustee area, it is still their responsibility to serve all 10 schools in the district.
